Jamie Redknapp has branded Wolves as the “most exciting team to have come up from the Championship in 20 years”. Wolves cantered to the Championship last season, landing the title with 99 points, and they have managed to keep the momentum going in their first season back in the Premier League since the 2011/12 campaign.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men also managed to book their place in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday with a 2-1 home victory over Manchester United, and only Watford stand in their way of making the final for the first time since they lifted the trophy in 1960.
Former midfielder Redknapp, who played for Bournemouth, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Southampton, has praised the performances of Wolves, reserving special praise for two attacking players. “Wolves are the most exciting team to have come up from the Championship in 20 years, he wrote in his column for the Daily Mail.
“Now they have the chance to cap a wonderful campaign with FA Cup glory. “Manchester City are still favourites but Wolves are the side they would least like to face in the final. Strikers Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota can hurt any top-flight defence.”
